Be sure to read:
Also, since you are new to guinea pigs, there is a lot of very useful information to the found in the GL Guide:
The Guide also has information on cage sizes. Bigger is better; most commercial/pet store cages are entirely too small:
Guinea Lynx is a great place to learn! Welcome.
It takes a while to build up trust but just spend time with them and talk to them so they get used to your voice and hand feed them treats and veggies as well as sef said.
However if any of them seem to not be active at all and spend their time hiding and/or hunched up then that may require a vet trip. If you aren't already doing so I'd weigh them at least once a week to make sure they are putting on weight, maybe more for the first few weeks.
When I'm holding them, they'll run up under my chin and cuddle in when something startles them. For floor time, I sit right on the floor with them and they'll run to me if they get scared or to get some attention when they think they've seen enough around the blocked off part of the room. It's actually very cute and the love is mutual.
